When a child’s immune system doesn’t work properly, the consequences can be fatal. But investigators at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Research Institute are working hard to advance our knowledge of immunology and improve diagnostic testing and care.

Our research ranges from basic science studies that dissect essential genetic programs to clinical studies that test new approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of immunologically mediated diseases.

Research highlights include:
